Hospital personnel transported a student out of Praise Gathering tonight after he experienced a seizure. North Central Security members were also on the scene.
At 10:57 p.m. on Feb. 22, the individual who requested to remain unnamed, was wheeled out of the lower north section of the Trask Word and Worship Center on a gurney. The student is a student at Bethany Global University located in Bloomington, according to his friends who were on the scene. After spending approximately ten minutes in the ambulance, the individual walked back into North Central’s atrium. The ambulance never left the front of the worship center.
The Praise Gathering (PG) team has made an emphasis on making the weekly worship service a community event open to students from other universities. They have seen much success in this area. There are numerous students from outside North Central who attend the event on a frequent basis.
This week’s PG held an emphasis on divine healing, but this incident did not deter leaders from seeking healing for others or detract them from their primary objective.
“The main goal tonight was not only for people to receive healing,” said Kyle Jorris, a member of the PG leadership team. “Our goal is that people experience God’s presence. Nothing can hinder that goal.”
